Support » Plugin: User Submitted Posts » Save draft?

  • Resolved kasidya


    Hi Jeff, hope you’re good. So I have your plugin on my website and it’s great. Except for the ability to save drafts. I am using the rich text editor because I want users to be able to ‘add media’ in between the texts. However, there is no feature as to allow them to save their drafts or auto-save their text which is a real problem because if for some reason the user’s article doesn’t get submitted in the first go (exceeded maximum image size, not selected a mandatory option, etc), the all of the text gets cleared and they have to start again.

    Is there a workaround this? Is there a feature to save drafts or auto-draft that I am missing?

    Looking forward to your response. Thanks for the help!

    Glad to help. What you describe is how the plugin works normally: if the form is submitted with an error, the form fields are returned along with any entered infos. If that is not happening in your case, then something (like a plugin, theme, browser setting, et al) is interfering. To find out what is causing the issue, you can do some basic troubleshooting. I would be glad to send a guide if it will be useful for you.



    Thanks for the reply. I meant the plugin is working fine. But say, for whatever reason, the page is refreshed and the user’s post didn’t get submitted then they have to type it all over again.

    So, is there a feature like an auto-draft or something that will allow users to save drafts?

    Hope this clears it up. Looking forward to your response. Thanks!

    Oh thanks for clarifying. Something like that is not a feature of the plugin, primarily because the form data is saved in the form when there is an error, or if the user leaves and returns later, etc. I do appreciate the feedback though!
